Arithmetic Tutoring

Arithmetic is the art of manipulating numbers. The earliest humans used many methods to describe and manipulate numbers including: notched bones or sticks, groupings of pebbles or shells, or painted tally marks or hand prints.  Visual means of imagining numbers help students of all ages learn math. 

Numbers are reached by creating an arbitrary unit, called "one", and then duplicating, removing, and/or cutting into equal parts as needed.  This is done to describe a pattern.  Math is the language of describing those patterns and they can be learned in simple layman terms. 

Discrete numbers 18, 21, 22, 24, 25

Note that 19 and 23 are prime and won't readily make patterns.
